Galvion's Advanced Helmet Solutions: Enhancing Survivability for Modern Military Operations

Galvion's Batlskin® head systems are meticulously designed to enhance survivability in modern military operations by combining advanced protection, agility, mobility, and integration. The use of innovative materials such as Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) results in lighter helmets that provide superior ballistic and impact protection, even in extreme temperatures.

At the heart of their production process is their Newport facility, which employs cutting-edge composite manufacturing techniques. This facility has the capability to produce helmets using both polyethylene and aramid, thanks to its flexible tooling and advanced equipment, including new chilling capacity, a Gerber material cutting machine, and molds that provide both heating and chilling during the shell molding process.

Galvion's expertise with UHMWPE ensures that their helmets deliver exceptional high-velocity fragmentation protection and resistance to 9mm RTP, compression, and impact. Their ongoing research and collaboration with UHMWPE suppliers help refine the manufacturing nuances, ensuring consistent performance and protection in varied environments.

The Batlskin Viper® Modular Head Protection System exemplifies this commitment to protection and adaptability. This system includes custom components like multi-purpose front mounts, rail systems, a three-position visor, and mandible guards, offering comprehensive head and facial protection against a wide range of threats while allowing for the integration of headborne devices. The Viper system's modular design has been adapted for use in other industries and applications, including tactical, paramilitary, and special operations.

The Batlskin Caiman® Helmet Suite is another standout offering, designed specifically for Special Operations Forces. This suite includes a ballistic helmet system, a hybrid helmet system, and a bump helmet system, all designed for maximum scalability and integration. The Caiman Hybrid Helmet system can be equipped with a ballistic applique to provide additional protection as needed, making it highly adaptable to varying threats and unpredictable scenarios.

Galvion's relentless focus on research and development ensures that their head protection systems remain at the forefront of military technology, providing soldiers with the best possible tools to enhance their survivability in the field.
